See What Our Customers Are Saying About Us
"Our area has strong currents with 10' tides, so getting to and from the dock can be tricky. The combination of stern and bow thruster is a game changer and works great to reduce the most stressful time of boat operation. Your company sold me exactly what I asked for. My experience overall was very very good. I would definitely recommend you to others."
St. Simons, GA, USA
"Once we found Sideshift, it just made the experience so pleasant. The boat will nearly rotate on a dime. Sideshift gave me back my boating experience. "
Lake Pleasant, AZ, USA
"Works fantastic. As you would imagine, coming into a slip with two feet on one side and one foot on the other with a 58 ft houseboat in a crosswind can be a bit challenging! I used to sweat a lot bringing it in, but not anymore. I know, even in wind, I can do it with little problems. What a huge difference these make! Should be standard on every houseboat."
New Palestine, IN, USA
"I've got the PT360 Docking System, which includes the bow and stern thruster. The PT360 has completely changed our boating experience: I've got a very narrow slip to get in to, even made narrower because we put a lift in there. So having the PT360 gives me complete maneuverability regardless of wind, current ... it just makes things so much easier. It's a very straightforward installation process ... if you're handy and you take your time and you read the instructions; and what's great is that if you have any questions, get on the phone with the guys from Sideshift and they'll talk you through anything. They're great, absolutely fantastic customer service."

"I couldn't have been more satisfied with the entire purchasing process with Sideshift. Their customer service and technical support teams were very knowledgeable and patient with all of my questions and concerns. Installation was done entirely by myself while our 25' Harris Grand Mariner tri-toon was on it's lift at our dock. All instructions were clearly written along with drawings and photos to help identify each step. Parts were packaged exceptionally well and the complete unit arrived without one scratch and with almost everything needed for my particular installation. All components exposed to the environment appear to be either stainless steel, anodized or powder-coated. We have many restaurants around the Lake of the Ozarks here in Missouri and their various docks can get pretty congested on the weekends. Add a little wind to the equation, and docking can be a real challenge. I know that the Sideshift will make anyone look like a pro - whether you are pulling in or backing in."
Gravois Mills, MO, USA
"Docking stress is now a thing of the past. Thruster works better than anticipated. I am so pleased with the results, that I recommend you to all ... two others in my Marina have already bought them."
Upton, Dorset, UK
"Absolutely fantastic from order to installation. As advertised, it's made docking pretty much stress-free. I'm a satisfied customer, keep up the great work."
Kuwait City, Kuwait
"I can't tell you how much your concern, professionalism and expertise helped to ease a stressful situation for us! It's obvious that your company cares about its customers and the products you sell. Even though I "inherited" the thruster on a boat I purchased last October, you treated me like I was the original buyer. I am 64 years old and this was probably one of the VERY best customer service experiences that I've ever had! You can bet I'll recommend your company to anyone in the marina interested in a thruster. Again, my sincere thanks"
Ambler, PA, USA
"Definitely Easier to handle the 42-foot Trawler. Great product; far less expensive to purchase and install than comparable tunnel version but works as good if not better than thru-hull installs."
Reno, NV, USA
"My wife and I both love the Sideshift stern thruster. It has made life a lot easier"
Little Valley, NY, USA
"We can dock our boat into any breeze and pull away from the jetty without touching. The ease of installation and not having to pull the boat from the water was great."
Karrinyup, WA, Australia
"The customer service was great and the installation was very easy I have a houseboat and I made the installation in the water. There is no comparison, it made docking extremely easy. I would recommend this to anyone with a houseboat."
Post Falls, ID, USA
"Everything was as advertised. It takes the stress out of docking."
Hebron, IN, USA
"Excellent customer service and installation process was an easy install. Before the install, docking and maneuvering in close quarters were always a concern and required help from passengers. Now, I can do the docking solo while my wife and passengers simply enjoy the day."
Paradise, Newfoundland, Canada
"Great, makes docking a lot less stressful."
Konrad St Gelais
Fairhaven, MA, USA
"Thruster is working perfectly and reducing my docking stress a lot"
"Fantastic. The thruster makes docking simple and stress-free. It gives us time to tie the lines and reduce the scramble. Love the product, highly recommended and having the key fob control is amazing!"
Victoria, BC, Canada
"Absolutely fantastic. I don't know how you could possibly improve: from the moment I called you to the moment I turned the thrusters on, I am very very happy."
Miamisburg, OH, USA
"Makes controlling the front of the boat a lot easier at the dock, and even navigating through the channels. I had the Sideshift unit installed by the companies' Tech, Jason. He did a great job and was nice to work with. Everything went very smooth, great folks to work with."
Newark, OH, USA
"Thruster is working very well, exceeding expectations: makes boat maneuvering in tight situations easy, reducing the stress."
